2015 Subaru Impreza

The 2015 Subaru Impreza strengthens its position as the affordable, efficient, and capable small car with a mild exterior update and the addition of the EyeSight collision avoidance and warning system.

The 2.0 liter boxer four cylinder motor remains the same. It produces 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a choice of Lineartronic CVT or 5-speed manual transmissions. The CVT has been improved to eek out even more efficiency than before. The 2015 Impreza is rated at 28 MPG city, 37 MPG highway, and 31 MPG combined. This is even more impressive when you consider that it’s an AWD car.


We are impressed with Subaru’s EyeSight system. And now, it is available on the Impreza. EyeSight enables adaptive cruise control function, pre-collision braking, collision warning, as well as lane departure warning. EyeSight uses two forward looking cameras that are mounted up high and near the center rear-view mirror. The computer interprets the video feed and recognizes vehicles and objects ahead. It also watches out for lane markers.

EyeSight is available in 2.0i Limited 4-door and 2.0i Sport Limited models.


Visually, the Impreza receives new front bumper design with updated fog lights. When combined with the EyeSight system, the fog lights are Steering-Responsive. It means that the system will turn on/off left or right fog lights automatically depending on vehicle speed and steering angle to provide better turn illumination.
